On April 17th, 2016 Gov. Wolf signed into a law a medical marijuana program for Pennsylvania. However with this law, there is a ban on smoking marijuana flower as well as edibles. On June 20th, 2017 the first 12 cultivators were licensed in PA. The first 27 Dispensary licences were announced on June 29th, with 52 dispensary locations approved. Both the Cultivation Centers and Dispensary must be open and operational within 6 months of getting their license. In the end, there will be a total 25 cultivators that will be permitted along with 50 dispensary licenses (for up to 150 dispensaries), the second round of licenses have currently been awarded as well.
February 15, 2018 was an historic day in the Keystone State. Less than two years after the governor signed Act 16 into law, dispensaries began selling medical marijuana to patients and caregivers. Pennsylvania is expected to be one of the largest medical marijuana markets in the country, and those involved in implementation should be applauded for reaching this point ahead of schedule.
As of mid-April, nine dispensaries and two grower/processors are operational. Over the next few months, we expect up to 81 dispensary locations to open across the state. More than 30,400 patients have registered to participate in the medical marijuana program, and nearly 1,000 physicians have registered with the department, more than half of whom have competed the training to become certified practitioners!
On May 12, the department will issue regulations to allow patient access to medical cannabis flower and to expand qualifying conditions — including substitute therapy for opiate addiction. They will then undergo legislative review.
On July 31, 2018 Phase 2 of the licensing process for growers was completed, selecting 13 companies and further expanding what is poised to become one of the largest MMJ industries in the nation. This now brings the total number of growers to 25.
On August 1st, dry cannabis in flower form was legal to be sold for vaporizing ONLY. If a patient is caught with smoking devices, they can be charged with a paraphernalia offense. Additionally, a patient who is not acting in compliance by smoking marijuana may lose their medical marijuana card.
